A week ago I was again lucky enough to take a trip to another one of the warmer towns outside of Bogota. I got the chance to soak up some sun, work on my tan and spend the day lounging by the pool. It truly was a perfect weekend. This was my second time visiting Girardot, and honestly if I could go back every weekend… I would!
As I mentioned in a previous post (Bogota) one of best parts about living in Bogota is the towns that surround the city. Bogota is 8,675 feet above sea level, and if you leave the city you start to go lower and lower in altitude. Well… as Colombia is so close to the equator, when you go down to a lower altitude .. it gets very hot, very fast, so be prepared for summer-like weather.. So that means you can drive just a few hours outside of the city and arrive to a much warmer climate. And that’s exactly what you find in Girardot.
The warmth of Girardot was a very welcome & much needed change for me. Anyone who knows me knows that I loooove the summer… Well being as Bogota doesn’t really have seasons, beaches or warm weather, a day trip to some nice hot weather was exactly what I needed. I mean this was my first summer that I didn’t even have a summer!
I mean seriously doesn’t this look like a slice of heaven?
And this was booked through AIRBNB … aka the best thing ever. With Airbnb the best part is that you get exactly what you see in the pictures. Hotel photos are always professional, wide angle and enhanced… Sometimes a little misleading? Airbnb photos are taken by the owners. The end result means the accommodation is almost better than expected! Airbnb gives you the option of renting an entire home, a private room or sharing a room, so whatever budget you are on, there is definitely something for everyone.
